Elkton robbery suspect turns self in

The man sought in connection with an armed robbery earlier this month in Elkton turned himself in to police Sunday night.

Eighteen-year old Caleb Bell of Elkton surrendered himself peacefully to Guthrie Police about 10:40 p.m., according to Sgt. Dean Blumel, who served Bell with a warrant taken out by Elkton Police for first-degree robbery, first-degree assault and unlawful transaction with a minor.

The warrant alleges that on January 18th, Bell approached a vehicle at Royal Arms Apartments along with 33-year old Ashley Mimms and a juvenile and they robbed and assaulted one of the occupants.

The adult male victim sustained swelling to his face and a gunshot allegedly fired by Bell missed the victim and went through the passenger side door.

The victim told Elkton Police that Bell and the other suspects thought he had stolen their dog and they took a dog and homemade wooden baseball bat out of his vehicle during the robbery.

Mimms and a juvenile were arrested on the night of the incident and Bell had been sought.

He is lodged in the Todd Conty Jail on a $50,000 bond.
